Honestly I would not count out the 12P because it has body in mids that smaller drivers simply don't seem to manage as well from my experience, that includes boxes. Also, the crossover is seamless at 115-150, just disappears!

Probably worth noting that the A12s are 6 1/2" drivers.

Persomally i give the edge to smaller drivers in the mid... and not by a little bit. Mond you i haven't treated my A12.2 yet.

" I f you have less than a top notch amp, the Alpairs will telegraph any shortcomings, the EL70 is more tolerant. "

Dave

Totally agree with Dave's observations here!

I started a thread discussing this.
And I'm going to take the advise given by Dave regarding the EL70

Thanks everyone

Teeny drivers produce teeny sounds. Simple Physics.

That was my concern as well. But I've been told the EL70 can produce a solid amount of sound. More so than some of the larger speakers I was looking to purchase.

The EL70's in an appropriate enclosure is a VERY satisfying combination.
-well worth a try

If by some chance I purchase a different amplifier in the next few days, I will purchase the Alpair, otherwise the EL70 will be my genie pig.

but the smaller cones are more rigid so you get better midrange clarity. it's all tradeoffs. most people listen to music at 80 dB anyway, that's much less than one watt. if one desires high SPL party speaker, they are wasting their time here in the fullrange forum.

I told you you should have come over for diyFEST, then you'd know how wrong you are.
